The Rapid City Council has decided the city will not foot the bill for replacing the roof of the Minneluzahan Senior Center. The Rapid City Journal stated that the Council pointed to the hundreds of thousands of dollars the center has received from the city in the past as a reason to not fund the repair.
The Minneluzahan Senior Center entered into a lease with the city in 1976. The lease terms include rent of $1 annually, with maintenance and updates to be done by the senior center. Council members favored finding other means to fix the roof, including applying for a future round of city Vision Funds.
